Reyneke Capstone 2013

Tasting Notes

June 2018 - The 2013 Reyneke Capstone shows why South Africa is sometimes referred to as a bridge between the old and new world. The nose has a black olive and graphite top note that gives some engaging earthy spiciness with some tobacco and dried herb overlaying the pretty red currant and darker cassis fruit on the nose. The spicy, earthy component, from the large percentage of Cabernet Franc (43%), comes forth in the palate with a touch of salinity creating a combo of sweet fruit and a savory underpinning. Medium fuller bodied, the tannins are finer toned, firming up the backend and giving nice structure support while the finish features a nice earth inflected note. This is just now opening up and should show well over the next 2-3 years.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 Stars 2016 platter’s South African Wine Guide
Plenty of spice & fleshy charm in cab franc-based 13; merlot, cab add nuance & structure to warrant ageing. Light feel, a modest hint of new oak (20%) & ripe, dry tannins.
